Shadow....at 1 month old this kitten is only 4 weeks old and will be barely weaning. Does she have the mom cat still?? Is there any way that you could take the entire litter and keep them with their mother until they are older?? Ideally, kittens should not leave their mother until they are between 10-12 weeks (around 2 1/2 to 3 months of age). Since you are getting a kitten that is so young, you may still need to bottle feed it if it hasn't fully weaned yet. I would recommend you bookmark this site:http://www.kitten-rescue.com
and click on the 4 -5 weeks page for information on what to expect.
Also, if this woman does have the mother cat and is only giving away the kittens, make sure she has the mother cat spayed so that it will not become pregnant again.
